| Blu Ray

Four Films 1936-1938 brings together a quartet of 1930s features by Sacha Guitry, the celebrated French filmmaker, playwright and actor of the stage and screen, each based on his earlier works. Indiscretions (Le Nouveau testament) follows a holier-than-though physician who is scuppered by his own hypocrisy. My Father Was Right (Mon père avait raison) tells off a man who, after being left by his wife for another man, raises his son to be wary of women. Let's Dream (Faisons un rêve ) is another story of mistrust, between husband, wife and lovers. And the history of one of France's most famous streets is retold in Up the Champs-�lysées (Remontons les Champs-�lysées), featuring multiple performances from Guitry himself. Available for the first time on Blu-ray this set presents some of Guitry's earliest and most enjoyable works.
